Rickey Keas

May 13, 1961 — May 8, 2024


Rickey Keas, a beloved member of the Brownwood and Coleman communities, passed away on May 8, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of hard work, creativity, and love. Born on May 13, 1961, in Brownwood, Texas, Rickey was a man of many talents and passions.
Throughout his life, Rickey wore many hats from owning Keas Construction and building homes in Brownwood and Coleman to showcasing his culinary skills as a chef at La Quistedor and working in the oil fields. His dedication to his various professions was evident in the exceptional quality of work he produced.
Rickey's love for collecting coins and knives, as well as his enthusiasm for hunting and fishing, brought him immense joy. These hobbies not only brought him personal satisfaction but also allowed him to connect with others who shared his interests.
Family was at the core of Rickey's being. He always held a special place in his heart for his mother Audrey Keas, whom he considered his rock and inspiration. His unwavering love for his family extended to his wife Jeane Wheat, whom he married on January 1, 1995, in Coleman, Texas. Rickey was proud to come from a large and loving family.
In the midst of our grief at Rickey's passing, we find solace in celebrating his life. He touched the hearts of many and will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
